    Meet Jumbo

Jumbo is an active orangutan who loves nothing more than to play on ropes or the tyre swing. Baby Cinta adores Jumbo and will often approach him for a cuddle or play. He grudgingly puts up with this attention - although we all think he secretly enjoys it! Besides learning to climb trees, Jumbo is also learning how to build sturdy nests.

Background

Jumbo was sadly separated from his mother after hunting dogs scared her away in the forest. The trauma of losing his mother at such a young age is still evident, and Jumbo oftens wraps his arms around his body and hugs himself when he is surprised or scared.

 Fun Fact

Cheeky Jumbo likes to pull practical jokes on babysitters by tugging at the lanjung bags they carry and causing the fruit inside to spill out.
